The AFA is proud to announce its support of the 2014 Fringe Furniture Festival. The Grand Opening is happening today, Wednesday the 18th September at the iconic Abbotsford Convent in Melbourne. 

This ideas showcase has grown over its history to claim a critical position in Melbourne’s design landscape. Fringe Furniture is an open-access design event and is offered to any artist, from any discipline. The event encourages not only furniture designers but also artists and designers from lighting, home-wares, wearable objects, decorative arts, permanent and ephemeral works to get involved, responding to each year’s theme by submitting a piece for display.  

A number of Australian Furniture Association members will take part in this year’s exhibition and the association is very proud to judge and present the award for ‘Best Student Design’ in the furniture category.
